December 2021 Directors Letter

Happy Holidays!  We are so glad you are part of our Sno-Valley Senior Center family!

Sno-Valley Senior Center is here to inspire and support seniors to lead healthy, enriched lives. As our members, you know all about the amazing programs we have and have tried many of them!

The holidays are coming and most of us don’t need more stuff. So give yourself and your friends the gifts of health and happiness with a gift certificate from the Sno-Valley Senior Center. Or better yet give a gift certificate to one of your friends and neighbors and introduce them to all of our great programs.

We will offer a few different gift certificates:

  • Enhance Fitness certificate is $36 for 12 classes! (Classes include aerobics, weights and stretching)
  • Reflexology certificate is $35 to enjoy a foot massage with pressure points to increase your health
  • Community Dining certificate is $50 for a punch card for 10 meals
  • Membership gift certificate is $60 for an individual and $75 for a household
  • Re-In-Carnation gift certificates are $10 and can be purchased in multiples.

The certificates can be purchased at the Senior Center front desk or on-line at The
recipient will need to bring in the certificate to the Senior Center to redeem it. This is an amazing way to support your health as well as support the Senior Center. So tell your family and Santa that it’s what you want for the

Membership has many benefits. The primary ones are that you get this newsletter delivered directly to your home, a free birthday lunch and you receive discounts on the programs and trips! But another benefit is the privilege to vote for the SVSC board. You will receive a ballot soon in the mail so please vote and return it to the Center, you’ll find short bios for each of the new candidates towards the back of the newsletter. Our annual members meeting will be Wednesday, Jan. 12 at 12:20 p.m. with updates for the future and a look back at the past year. The meeting will be in-person with an online zoom option. So mark your calendar now!

We have some amazing programs here. Please welcome our Spanish speaking elders coming on the 3rd Monday of the month. Join them for lunch or for the game Lotteria! Do you speak a little Spanish or want to practice, let us know as we’re looking for a couple of volunteer helpers.

You might see kids here occasionally as the Kinship group (Grandparents or relatives raising grandchildren) come for support and lunch last Thursday of the month. During the holidays, feel free to bring your grandkids to join you for lunch or fitness. We love to see them!

Speaking of the holidays, we’ll be giving our hard-working staff a vacation and will be closed from Dec. 22nd – Jan. 3rd.  We’ll look forward to new programming and extended hours in the new year! We’ll be hiring an evening staff person to be a building monitor and to assist with volunteer management early in 2022. If you’d like a part-time job or know of someone, tell them to e-mail me. It will start out three days a week from 4:00 pm – 8:00 pm so we can offer some adult education and fitness classes for those still working or those who just prefer to get out in the evenings. So be looking for that!

Have a wonderful holiday and let us know if we can support you through them with counseling, food or transportation. We know the holidays are not always merry for everyone.  Our social worker and staff are here for you.  And I’m always available to hear your thoughts.
